Spotify Engineering Culture

Spotify Engineering Culture – part 1 from Spotify Training & Development on Vimeo.

I'm giving a talk at Learnfest today which has already proved to be a refreshingly different and fascinating conference (more on that later). Tamas Mihalovits, the Global Training Manager at Spotify (who ran one of the sessions here) told me about this video on Spotify's Engineering Culture. It's a more in depth look at the scaling agile approach that I talked about here and really worth watching. Lots of great stuff in here including the importance of not getting too tied up in process ("Rules are a good start, then break them when needed"), the squads, chapters and tribes approach to agile structures (really like the 'aligned autonomy' idea), and the approach to work environment. Much that is applicable outside of engineering teams too. Thanks to Tamas.
